The best part of living on Isla Navarino is that the island is part of the UNESCO Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve, which recognizes this part of Chile as one of the most pristine ecoregions in the world.

It is a true gift for my children to experience this incredibly clean enviornment.  Every single time we step off the boat we discover a very distinct selection of marine life which includes a beautiful array of seaweed, algaes and shelfish:
